Rendezvous with Abundance

Hugh C. Benner
Hugh Benner

from book jacket:

"In Rendezvous with Abundance, Dr. Benner pictures the vast spiritual resources now available to us -- 'The Church of the Nazarene has had a rendezvous with abundance.' "

This denomination did not rise as a protest movement nor on a negative basis. It had a sound historical context. While our history as a group lies within the twentieth century, we are rooted in those doctrines held throughout the centuries.

Singing Disciples

Hugh C. Benner
Red cover with a white quarter note on the front

Abstract: Singing Disciples is written, not as an exhaustive treatise on church music, but as a brief, practical manual designed to assist the average church and the average church musician "toward better church music." Those interested in a more formal or liturgical type of service will find nothing of any particular interest here.
